Ok, joking aside, I think I do have a couple of strengths:
**I know what I like – and what I like is generally very good. In my opinion obviously.**
>My taste mutated from being a massive Alan Davis/Steve Dillon fan to Adam Hughes, JG Jones, JH Williams and others of that ilk (realistic, strong storey tellers). I kinda figure that if you’ve awful taste in artists then you’re own art isn’t gonna get good. (BTW: those are just the comic artists, at one point I owned a couple of first and second edition Ring Cycle books illustrated by Arthur Rackham who is fantastic – and I’ve always loved Alphonse Mucha, although I’ve a new found love for Degas – since the [Paris Trip](http://www.pauljholden.com/wordpress/?p=480) )
**I’m really critical of my own stuff**
>There are some things of mine I’ve done that I look back on and think – wow, I really like certain aspects of that/those, but, as a general rule, I tend to look back through my fingers in abject terror – these means, hopefully, I’m always moving on.
**I’m bloody lazy – and I know it.**
>Ok, that’s not a strength, but I’m convinced, deep inside of me, is the makings of a really fantastic artist (this may be a delusion, but still) and I’m gonna chip away until the bugger is revealed – this is why I continue to draw despite constantly griping about my inability. The fantastic artist delusion is probably as a result of my awful short term memory – where I forget just how bad I can be.
There we go, I hope that’s cleared up any ambiguity about my creative strugglings 🙂
